Our Review

AsianDate is a popular niche dating website catering mostly to American men who are looking to date women with Asian backgrounds. This dating website actively promotes itself as a platform where members can do live chatting and video cam sharing with Asian women.

Yet, this dating website has its share of controversies.

In 2015, it received a lawsuit over stolen photos of women that were published as profiles on the site without their consent. This was swiftly cleaned up by AsianDate with their PR team.

Today, AsianDate features thousands of Asian women profiles, and the controversy of it being a scam site is still popping up in the World Wide Web and continuously being shut down by its team.

To see if AsianDate is worth your time, we took the time to check out every cost and feature of this Asian dating site. Read on the in-depth review to find out.

Member Structure

  • Search shows only Asian women profiles
  • Women user base comes from countries with Asian backgrounds
  • Majority of the members are females
  • Women you chatted with are saved to your contact list
  • Member searches do not show any profiles of men

The gender ratio of AsianDate is supposedly 75% women and 25% men, but when we tested the website, we couldn't find any men profiles in the member search.

We also found out that only men were allowed to create profiles and that members are unable to see fellow members as the search only shows the women profiles listed within the app. Because it is a niche dating site, most of the profiles come from Asian backgrounds, and the authenticity of the profiles is controversial.

Most men who sign-up at AsianDate may just be looking for a virtual relationship as AsianDate claims that they genuinely come from the Far East. Unless they travel to China or any other Asian country, that’s the only time they’d be able to go on a real date.

Signing Up

AsianDate Registration
  • 1-2 minutes registration process
  • Only men seeking women are allowed to signup
  • Users can sign up using their Google account
  • Email verification required

Signing up in AsianDate is a quick process. You are allowed to sign up using your Google account or input your data such as name, email, nominated password, sex, and sexual orientation.

Although there is a choice indicating “Women seeking men,” only men that are seeking women can register as members successfully. After signing up, you are not redirected to your profile. Instead, you are brought to your dashboard where you will find several profiles of Asian women with ‘Start Live Chat’ and ‘Start Cam Share’ call-to-action buttons.

Making Contact

AsianDate Contacting
  • A chat room function is available
  • Actual 3-way phone call with an interpreter feature
  • Live chat and cam share are for paying members
  • Uncertain if messages from women are real or fake

Contacting and messaging in AsianDate is free for the first exchanges. After the first message exchange, you are required to pay credits to keep chatting. AsianDate blocks the chat window and prompts you to buy credits. Another way to speak with the women from the dating site is through letter exchanges.

As a free member, you can receive letters sent by the ladies. AsianDate indicates if reading the letter is free or not. The letter usually contains 2-3 short paragraphs of the woman introducing herself and what she likes to do—which would make you think that it’s too detailed. Some letters say that they need a man to love, and if you are the person, they’ve been looking for. These messages are highly likely to be fake. Replying to the letters is not free; it costs ten credits.

Another way to contact women is by reserving a slot for an actual phone call. A three-way call with an interpreter costs 100 credits for a minimum of 10 minutes.

Profile Quality

AsianDate Profile
  • Free to view
  • You can opt to complete your profile for later
  • Profile details can be changed for later
  • Members are allowed to put custom messages on their profiles
  • All members can view full-sized primary photos
  • Most of the women's profile photos are model shots and show no candidness

    Male profiles in AsianDate show few fields of information about the members’ appearance, character, and interests. There are paragraph fields that the members can write something about themselves to make them more appealing. Also included in user profiles is a description of the type they are looking for.

    As for the women’s profiles, they feature a substantial amount of information. And their photo galleries are often full. Most women even have videos published, which men need to pay credits to view.

    After signing up, most dating apps encourage their members to complete their profiles. That’s not the case with AsianDate. The site does not persuade you to complete your profile. It seems that adding a profile picture and information is insignificant to get ladies to contact you. Even with an empty profile, your inbox would still get bombarded by messages from women. This proves that almost if not all, women profiles in AsianDate are fake, and bots send messages.

    App

    AsianDate App
    • Free to download in Google Play Store
    • Simple and user-friendly interface
    • Phone notifications for new messages
    • Scroll down-type member search
    • Suggestions are not automatically refreshed

    AsianDate’s mobile app is only available for Android users. There is not much difference in the mobile app and the website in terms of features. The only advantage of the mobile app is the messaging function found at the bottom of every women’s profile.

    This allows for a faster and more convenient way of contacting. Also, every new message pops up in the app’s header area. If you click the message, it will redirect you to the chat function, which you have to pay credits to continue.

    Real Life Review

    My experience with AsianDate wasn’t at all bad, yet neither was it good. I actually find my experience funny. Despite signing up without a profile picture, I immediately received several letters from Asian women in my inbox. I wasn’t able to read through all of it—just overnight my inbox had over 50 letters. The letters on the first page were free to read, but the succeeding—you had to pay credits. No thanks! Aside from the letters, there was a right sidebar that showed users who were able for a free live chat. Preview of the messages showed conversation starters with my name. Obviously, these were automated bots sending default templates.

    I tried chatting with some of the women and their replies were totally unrelated to my message. Ergo, strengthening my claim that they are chatbots. After the first two message exchanges, AsianDate will prompt that you need to buy credits in order to continue the chat. Again, no thanks!

    Design and Usability

    The website presents a straightforward design where the interface shows everything you need for getting around and exploring the app. Buying credits is always on the left sidebar of the home and search page, as well the search and feature tabs for easy navigation.

    The right sidebar features online ladies who are available for a free chat. Chatting with a woman would bring you to a pop-up window to enable you to talk and explore the app simultaneously.

    Every interaction and activity on the website has a glowing call-to-action button to encourage you to buy credits and experience the site entirely.

    AsianDate Pricing
    Payment Options
    • Credit Card
    • PayPal

    Instead of membership, AsianDate sells prepaid credits to its members to access its paid features. To encourage users to subscribe, they offer a huge discount for every member’s first order. Instead of paying £15.99 for 20 credits, members can buy it for £2.99. Credits let users live chat and video chat with women listed on the dating site. This costs at least 10 credits or £8.00. A phone call with a woman and an interpreter is a minimum 10 minutes which costs 100 credits or almost £80.00.

    It could also buy virtual gifts, which amounts to 15 credits (about £10), and actual flowers and gifts that get delivered on the woman’s doorstep, which ranges from 12 credits (£9) for a single flower to a whopping 869 credits (around £350) for jewellery. Order delivery period is 3-5 days, and the sender will get notified along with a picture of the woman receiving the gift at the time of the delivery.

    Members have the option to automatically replenish their credit as soon as there’s nothing left. Refunds are subject to approval, and AsianDate only gives back no more than 10 credits. Due to fraud detection and safety, members are not allowed to make anonymous payments.

    Special Features

    AsianDate offers several expensive features on their website. They don’t have any monthly membership fees so availing these special offers are strictly on a pay-credit basis.

    3-Way Call with Interpreter

    If you want to have an actual phone call with any of the ladies on the website, you can schedule a phone call with her. Reservation is required because AsianDate claims that you are also booking an interpreter that will help you understand each other better.

    Sending of Virtual Gifts

    Paying members can also send a virtual gift to his chosen lady from the website. Each virtual gift costs 15 credits.

    Actual Gift Delivery

    Buying actual gifts that will get delivered within 3-5 days is also possible at AsianDate. You will get notified once the order has been successfully delivered, and will be sent a picture of the woman with the gift at the time of delivery.

    Editors Conclusion

    Datingscout.co.uk Editor Chris Pleines
    It is no doubt that AsianDate does provide a platform where men can communicate with women of Asian backgrounds. The dating website boasts thousands of profiles of Asian women whom they say are available to talk with—whether through live chat or a scheduled phone call. Their extensive roster of profiles with dressed-up pictures seemingly taken from an official photoshoot could indicate that those women do not have full control of their profiles to find someone to date. There is no candidness in their profiles. Instead, AsianDate acts like a pimp, selling the profiles to American men. And you can’t be so sure if those women know that their faces are even on the website unless you decide to send them an actual gift worth more than £200.But what could be considered fair in subscribing to AsianDate is that you get to avail their paid features by using prepaid credits. You are not tied up to a month’s membership. You have the choice where and how to use the credits, and they tell you how much each interaction costs. Nonetheless, if you’re looking for a date with a real live person, you might be better off exploring another dating app. Check out our Dating Apps category to find out which app is best for you.
